Marc Cetto, senior vice president of smartphone and tablet solutions for ST-Ericsson comments, "By integrating the powerful dual-core application processor with our industry-leading LTE multimode modem we bring further size, bill of materials and power consumption savings to our customers."

The NovaThor L8540 integrates a dual-core 1.85 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, a powerful Imagination PowerVR™ SGX544 GPU running at 500 Mhz and an LTE/HSPA+/TD-HSPA modem on a single 28-nm die. Thanks to its ultra-low voltage operating mode the platform extends battery life for typical smartphone usage by up to 30% compared to platforms in the market today.

The NovaThor L8540 will provide outstanding multimedia performance in an integrated solution, supporting 1080p video encoding and playback at up to 60 frames per second, 1080p 3D camcorder functionality, support for displays up to WUXGA (1920×1200) at 60 frames per second and support for cameras up to 20 megapixels.

The complete platform includes pre-integrated connectivity with support for Bluetooth, GNSS (GPS+ GLONASS), FM, WLAN, WiFi Direct and NFC. With the recently released ST-Ericsson connectivity solutions, CG2905 and CW1250, the platform comes optimized for wireless radio co-existence and low power consumption.

With support for up to eight LTE/HSPA/TD-SCDMA/GSM bands in a flexible and compact radio solution, the NovaThor L8540 addresses the need for a cost effective solution for widespread global adoption of LTE multimode smartphones.
